Welcome to healthcaremagic,
No nothing happens, its a myth otherwise many people had left eating raw things. The only reason to say so, may be that polluted, not well wahed raw rice can inferct your intestine but it can happen with any raw eatable things. But it does not look a good habbit culturally. Thanks.
